“Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly cited concrete examples of how the US Embassy is doing this, including through the participation of its diplomats in rallies of opposition parties,” Lavrov said.

Lavrov however emphasized that Moscow has no desires to interfere in US elections, or interfere in the domestic affairs of other states that cause wars under the guise of exporting democracy.

“We are not going to gain anything if we act this way,” he said citing religious morality and the pragmatic interests of the Russian state. “I don’t think that we will benefit if large countries start falling into the abyss of internal revolution,” the Russian top diplomat pointed out.
